The R&D team at Motorola seems to be on to something big, at least they believe so. Fudzilla have received confirmation about the company hard at work on their next big tablet project, which is a bit different from the current herd. Motorola will go old school on this one by offering a 4:3 aspect ratio on a 10-inch slab of glass. Not only that, it will sport a crazy high 2048×1536 resolution, that’s higher than any HDTV or 24-inch PC monitor currently available.
Could this be the next Xoom?
Sources at Fudzilla apparently have had a go at the prototype and say that it will run Ice Cream Sandwich when it comes out which means we are looking at a Q4 or early 2012 announcement. There’s no telling why Motorola would go with a 4:3 aspect when the entire world has moved on to the wide screen format. Maybe they are taking a cue from Apple, I mean, it’s worked brilliantly for them so it’s worth a shot. No word on what hardware it will be packing but my guess would be either Nvidia’s Tegra 3 or AMD’s Fusion APU.
